Event Overview:
As the world’s second largest economy, China's economic growth and government policies have a significant impact on the global economy. 

A case in point has been recent challenges triggered by a persistent and continual outflow of capital, with Chinese foreign currency reserves momentarily falling below US $3 Trillion in January for the first time in nearly six years. To counter this trend Chinese regulators are playing an increasingly active role in managing capital outflows.

The drivers and factors underscoring these policy shifts are widespread, complex, and encompass a range of issues including (but not limited to); China’s economic growth rates, RMB Internationalisation, domestic savings rates, property and commodity markets and government policy.

Given the scale and the potential impact of these developments, it is important that business understands key drivers of change. Join this expert panel as we unpack the underlying macro-economic trends driving these policy shifts, but also the impact this is having on Australia China bilateral business, including both FDI and M&A activities.

A short keynote will be provided by Christy Tan to set the scene and provide a general China economic and financial market update.
